In the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, this is not used as a name for a person, but a country.

Not sure whether this actually falls into the category of "useful information", but Idris was the name of a *female* character who played a small but important role in the sixth series of the new Doctor Who. Just thought that should be out there since a), there are a lot of Whovians, b), there are not a lot of Welsh mythology enthusiasts, so c), before naming your boy Idris, you may want to reconsider.
